Pastel Drawing for Beginners

Drawing & Painting

New Course

Throughout this 11-week course, open to complete beginners, we will explore painting with soft and oil pastels where we use the technique of mixing colours on the paper instead of the palette. We will investigate the influence of paper colour and texture on our pictures and a variety of mark making, colour mixing, blending techniques and colour theory. Students will also learn how to draw using observational mapping technique as well as free hand drawing. Reference images including landscapes, figures, animals/wildlife and still life will be supplied for tutor demonstrations and students are encouraged to also work from their own images

Materials Required:

Students are asked to bring their own soft pastel, oil pastel, pastel pencils, pastel paper, fixative and any images that you would be keen to work from.
